COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amarillo and Galaxy Double IPA

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Poured a cloudy, light orange/gold with a two-finger head. Nose was citrus (orange, lemon), grassy, resin. Taste followed with emphasis on orange notes. Palate was sticky and dry, with that dryness being the most important element in the aftertaste. Overall, this was a pretty nice treat, although it would be a bit harsh for anyone unaccustomed to drier DIPA’s.

jredmond (5628) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Draft at tired hands with Linh. Pours a hazy, bright orange body with a ton of white lacing. Aroma is fresh citrus, grapefruit, pine and funk. Mouthfeel is super fresh with notes of bitter hop, pone, citrus, sweet fruit, pineapple and grapefruit.

Damico (2681) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Pours clear light amber with a creamy light sandy head and great lacing. Aroma and flavor bring a huge juicy sweet and sharp hop presence from the Amarillo and Galaxy hops. Sweeter and smoother in the nose, quite potent hops on the tongue with a pleasant lingering ending.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, citrus, toffee, some toast, and a bit of alcohol. Taste of citrus fruits, pine, toffee malts, grass, and bitter grapefruit in the finish.

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Not a huge fan of Amarillo or Galaxy (esp the latter), and WeedEater boasts a huge hop profile. Somehow, this DIPA squashes those prejudices with a ginormous malt bill that smoothes out every rough edge from the aforementioned hops. Aroma rivals the Hill Farmstead DIPAs; appearance equals (or trumps!) them with lace that refuses to subside. No signs of the 9.3% ABV in this bad boy. Tired Hands brewed another winner!

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Growler from Avalon68. Thanks! Poured clear and amber. Decent head. Aroma was full of citrus and sweet pine. Flavors were well rounded and citrusy, bits of caramel and candied hops. Medium to full mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Big time bitter finish. Nicely executed big IPA from Tired Hands.

reggiedunlop (3218) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Pours a hazy golden/orange color with a medium creamy white head...excellent lacing and retention. Aroma has flowery grassiness with some citrus rind and spicy grapefruit notes. Flavor has an up front sweet citrus that is quickly overtaken with piney/skunky bitterness...earthy and herbal...very assertive bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with a piney/resinous/earthy dry, bitter finish.

Tinco (576) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2012
Nice cloudy orange white creamy head. Taste is nice lemon, orange, sweet grapefruit, juicy hops. Mellow bitterness, well hidden alcohol. Aroma is citrusy, sweet caramel, juicy. All in all a good DIPA but had higher hopes!

dagimp (741) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2012
On tap at TH and from a growler. Pours a surprisingly clear yellowish. Very white,thick head. Skunky,dank aroma but in a good way. Mouthfeel is very light for a 9.5% beer which makes this waaaaaay too drinkable. Perfect carbonation. Taste is also slinky, earthy and dank, but all mildly so. Very flavorful. Neither pine nor citrus dominate, each seems to contribute to the flavor. Another real winner from TH. I'm getting spoiled with their IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhillyCraft (3437) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Growler pour last week compliments of Joe. Had to try this Amarillo/Galaxy guy. Poured a slightly clear amber-orange with medium head and lacing. Notes of pine, pineapple, grapefruit, light caramel, and rustic grass. Malts were def present in this one to balance out the tropical juiciness from the solid hop bill. Medium body with a very bitter finish. I like bitterness but it was almost too much in the flavor. Aroma was a homerun though. Cheers
